Belgrade expert forensic pathologist Dusan Dunjic was found dead in his hotel room in the Hague, Sputnik Serbia reported.
Dunjic was an expert witness for the prosecution in the trials of former Serbian President Milan Milutinovic, as well as a number of prominent military figures who were tried for war crimes in Kosovo in the late 1990s. The Hague tribunal eventually acquitted Milutinovic.
The verdict in the Karadzic trial, which was completed in October 2014, is expected in early 2016.
Dr Dunjic was scheduled to give expert evidence on Friday in the trial of former Bosnian Serb army general Ratko Mladic, whose trial began in May 2012. The prosecution indicted Mladic on charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity, and closed its case in February 2014. Mladic's defense case began in May 2014 and is still ongoing.
